Northshore Dental and Oral Health
Professional Dentist on the Sunshine Coast
Our aim is to improve oral health of our local community by practicing the latest evidence based dentistry
Our practice has been in situ at Northshore Village for over 15 years developing a large patient base.
It was originally Its Your Smile but now changed name with investment in new technology and new ideas to create a
better level of care & service to our patients. Dr Nicholas Taft (BDS 1990, MFGDP 1998, ICCDE 2008, RACDS 2017)
has 28 years of experience in the field, and through his extensive studies has developed a philosophy of quality patient care.
Find out how Dr Taft provides quality patient care.
From our state-of-the-art modern practice we are proud to be serving the greater Pacific Paradise area.
We have a complete focus on family friendly dentistry and a belief that prevention really is better than a cure. Our skilled dental hygienists and therapists use the latest evidence based techniques. These are proven to minimise risk of cavities, fillings and complex restorative treatments.
With our preventive care, we follow the latest CAMBRA/periodontal protocols. At your regular preventive care and cleaning appointments, we can help you minimise gum disease, gum recession and bad breath. These check-ups mean we spend more time helping prevent oral disease, and less time undertaking complex, expensive dental work.
According to the latest studies in dental care, people who don’t attend regular dental appointments spend more money over a 10-year period.
We are continuously learning and educating ourselves to give you the most advanced dental treatments.
Treatment recommendations should be determined for you, by your Northshore dentist, and your preferences should be considered in all decisions.
The highest standards of dentistry are based on the skill, care and judgement of a suitably qualified practitioner. We use an evidence-based approach to dentistry, which takes the best, clinically relevant information to provide you with the most medically relevant treatments to suit your needs.
As a QIP accredited practice we have undergone a process to meet a strict set of standards that commit us to continuously improving the safety and quality of care we deliver to our patients.
Northshore Dental and Oral Health offer a comprehensive range of high-quality dental treatments to rebuild, enhance and transform your smile.
